Editorial Vintage for the Modern Woman
I’m a vintage inspired fashion designer, model, photographer and editorial blogger. I grew up on a farm in Eastern Colorado and graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Moving alone to loud, busy New York at the age of 22 was a huge shock for me at first. I cried on my first day in the city, and almost went straight back home. I am glad that I stuck it out, because the big apple is my home now. I love the fashion, the hustle and bustle, history and of course, the vintage scene here!
My Design Work:
I am mostly self taught using vintage sewing patterns. I drape or draft my patterns and sew my own designs, which I believe is essential to give each piece the feel found in vintage garments. I specialize in luxury fabrics and hand beading and embroidery. Having such nostalgia for the past, I wanted to re-create garments in the most authentic way possible. I use all vintage sewing techniques. That means no serge machine seam finishes, hand stitching all finishes and using seam binding tape.
I photograph mainly with my vintage Leica M4 35mm rangefinder camera and my trusty tripod. One thing has just led to another. I started an Etsy store for my fashion designs, which necessitated taking pictures, which turned into a blog. I found that I love photography as much as I love designing. I want to catch that vintage feeling in new images.
